Cancer is a rich persons disease. it is also a nice jolly for rich people (my blog) and politicians to administer charities who get money for something but do not solve cancer since that would make them out of a ‘job’.
On the radio is a cancer victim, who is explaining the limitations of cancer ‘solution providers such as the charities who it appears dont do a great deal and a victim with cancer still pays for treatment. I suppose that’s patents and stuff none of this being open source.
I could go on and link science journals to this malaise but i am sure your well aware of open access to research you fund.
Anyhow – It’s got to a point where even Microsoft think they can fix cancer*. So much for charities.
While it can be a good cause i do wonder if the means to the end is a money making first for as long as they can via fees and income from patents. It is kind of bonkers crazy when no cure is better for some – think on it.
*Microsoft cancer – has a level of truth even now.
